I have a really good idea for a post (in my head), but no time to put it all together right now….
So let me share some things from this week’s classes and this week.
From the garden...Joe's mom did this for us. We're not that handy (yet).
It's punkin time---I love to eat pumpkins but only in certain forms---I have an awesome pumpkin/protein smoothie (it tastes like cake, muffins, and ice cream all in one)
I bought an egg poacher, and my mom's response was, "Lisa, you don't need a special pan for that. Poached eggs are the easiest thing to make ever." Well...the instructions on the Internet didn't sound easy to me! Why poach? The egg yolk does not get fully cooked---the proteins stay more intact. Overcooked eggs lead to denatured proteins (not ideal). So, even if you're frying or scrambling, do it at a low temp.
I found this nut milk bag when I moved (I knew I had one---it was somewhere really really safe!). Raw almonds and nuts are kind of expensive, but you can make milk cheaper than buying it (and no preservatives). Plus, you can use the pulp for crackers and other snacks.
Yoga Teacher Training all weekend.
Next weekend (Sept 24th): Finger Lakes Wellness Fair in Canandaigua – it’s free! I’m providing 3 mini-workshops (ultimate smoothies, bone health, and nutrition for athletes). There is also massage, acupuncture, and tons of other cool stuff to check out. Here’s the info.
What we talked about in my classes this week: food safety (did you know you should wash your banana before you peel it?), digestive system, superfoods, and alcohol metabolism (and how to prevent hangovers).
What I’m crazy about right now: Epigenetics – how your lifestyle puts markers on your DNA that input how you express genes, how that was affected by your parents/grandparents, and how you can use it to your (and your born or unborn children’s) advantage.
What have you learned this week?
Happy Wine Friday! Tweet #winefriday to me if you’re celebrating! I think I technically had Wine Friday last night with the Other Lisa B! I don’t know what I was drinking (aside from the fact that it was chardonnay), but it went down easily enough that I stayed for dinner! (Thanks Lisa B—can’t wait for our next Wine Outing next Thursday for Riesling Hour)!
New blog design soon—I have a new logo, and I think Kristina at Spabettie could guess what kind of herb I have as a part of it! (Hint: it has something to do with my name)
